The story follows three characters on a violent collision course: Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), young street entrepreneur on a quest for power; Gustavo Zapata, a Mexican wrestler turned gangster in search of his American dream; and Logan Miller (Billy Magnussen), a prominent family's "black sheep" desperate to escape his father's shadow. The former will play the aforementioned Gustavo Zapata with Mays as Leon Simmons, "Franklin's (Damson Idris) best friend since childhood." DeRay Davis also stars. (Deadline.com)
